Cool Links for 7-14-2018
Here are a few cool links for 7-14-18
Summer is here, and the living is easy.
I grew up in Michigan, where we spent summer weekends at “the lake”. It didn’t matter if “the lake” was nearby Lake Michigan or one of the state’s 100,000 inland lakes. “The Lake” brought cool summer breezes and hours of entertainment.
If you have a place on a body of water, or even if you own a pool, you might be interested in purchasing one of these aquatic pool floats.
The resolution is not clear, but if you look closely, there are people riding on the backs of these floats.
Some of the floats come equipped with cup holders and a built-in cooler and will accomodate up to six people.
To purchase one of these beauties, head over to your closest Sam’s Club.

Summer activities for kids
Summer hours are challenging if you have kids out of school. If you’re looking for a quick, easy, free activity for them, check out these printable big monster coloring pages. With a printer and a handful of crayons, your kids will be occupied for hours.
Easy garden markers
If you’ve put in a garden this year, rain and sun might have faded your row markers. Replace them with painted stones. A few varied acrylic paints, a handful of stones found anywhere and clear varnish added to a minimum amount of time and a sprinkle of artist talent = the perfect garden marker. Heck, this could even be another activity for your kids!
